Our Mission

Operation CatSnip exists to provide non-lethal population control and assistance for cats.

This is accomplished by:

  • Performing high quality sterilization surgeries for cats to prevent homeless cats from being born.

  • Educating the public about cat overpopulation, sterilization programs and responsible cat care.

  • Providing exemplary services that are low-cost for families that are experiencing financial hardship.

  • Work with Metro Atlanta Veterinarians to help provide medical care and attention for indigent companion animals.

  • Operate an excellent, state-of-the-art clinic facility that employs caring, friendly and professional staff.

Why CatSnip?

While the majority of cats in Atlanta are afforded excellent health care, tens-of-thousands are destroyed annually. Many, many more live short, difficult lives outdoors. Sterilization is a non-lethal method of reducing cat overpopulation and the most humane way to prevent the birth of unwanted, homeless cats. On average, about 8 out of every 10 cats that enter Metro Atlanta shelters are euthanized. A large portion of those felines are kittens.

What is Project CatSnip™?

Project CatSnip™ is Atlanta's first and only mobile feline surgical unit specializing in spay/neuter. Our purpose is to end feline overpopulation in Atlanta by making crucial spay/neuter and identification services affordable and accessible for those on restricted incomes or who are caring for doorstep, stray and feral cats.

A mobile practice goes where the problems are and makes spaying/neutering accessible to more cat owners, especially those dealing with outdoor cats — affordability, accessibility and reluctance to s/n at an early age are among the chief reasons why cats produce unwanted litters.

Quality Medical Procedures

Feline spays and neuters will be performed by an experienced, licensed veterinarian assisted by two veterinary technicians. Rabies vaccinations will be provided for a small fee of $10. There is no charge for an office visit or examination. These services will be performed on an outpatient basis, with animals being delivered at 7:30 a.m. and retrieved in the late afternoon. An approved, safe anesthetic protocol that includes pain relief will be used and is included FREE of charge.

Specialists in Early Age Spay-Neuter (as early as 8 weeks)

Kittens can begin to reproduce at five months of age and can deliver two to three litters of seven kittens per litter, per year. Studies have indicated there are no adverse effects from pediatric (8 wks. to 24 wks.) surgeries. CatSnip specializes in early age spay and neuters. Early Age spay-neuter is endorsed by the American Veterinary Medical Association.
